Starbucks to test wireless phone charging services

  • After a successful test run in Boston, Starbucks (SBUX -1.4%) will introduce wireless cellphone services at locations in Silicon Valley.
  • The company will work with Duracell Powermat to help finetune the PMA standard in the select stores before backing a broader rollout.
  • The feature is seen giving Starbucks another competitive advantage over QSR rivals to help lure store traffic and justify its premium pricing.

    Good management always stays a step or two ahead. Go SBUX, I think we will all be rewarded in the long run. jpmj4847
